WHO proposes rescheduling cannabis to allow medical applications

World Health Organization proposes rescheduling cannabis to allow medical applications

https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.l574

"... The WHO Expert Committee on Drug Dependence has recommended that cannabis resin and other marijuana products should be downgraded from a schedule IV to a schedule I drug under international law. Schedule IV is the strictest category outlined in the 1961 Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs Treaty, meaning that cannabis is currently treated in the same way as heroin, severely restricting scientists who want to investigate the plant in the search for potential therapies. The committee also recommended that THC—the main psychoactive ingredient in cannabis—should be designated as a schedule I drug to simplify its classification. Currently, THC is classified separately as a schedule IV drug under the 1971 Convention on Narcotic Drugs. Furthermore, it proposes that products made with a cannabis extract known as cannabidiol, which contain no more than 0.2 percent THC, should be removed from all international drug control conventions ..."


The WHO writes guidelines for treating and defining disease. More good news it would seem, people waking up perhaps.

A lot of people have been waiting for this ruling it opens up the world market for CBD production. Even the hardcore anti-drug countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, etc. are legalizing CBD and some of them are setting up major grows. This sets the stage for growing high CBD strains instead of growing hemp and extracting the small amount of CBD it contains as China has been doing.

One of the dumb rules in place is that once the drugs are extracted from the cannabis it has to be destroyed, just like opium poppies. In China they use their regular commercial hemp for CBD extraction. They end up destroying the hemp fiber instead of using it even though it doesn't contain THC. This ruling probably changes that, makes CBD production that much more profitable.

India is setting up it's first CBD grow this year, the plans have been in the works since last summer in anticipation of this ruling. It's ironic that these Asian countries are bringing in people from Europe and the US to set the grows up because the governments completely lack experience in cannabis.

The ruling on THC won't affect most of us but it will legitimize medical research, once again in some hard core anti-cannabis nations. Maybe the Philippines can ask Gypsy to send them seed to set up their test grows.

Cbd was never regulated. Was never illegal. How do you deregulate something that was never regulated? Some people are really bad at interpreting law is all. And those people are responsible for licensing and taxation of fucking everything.

I hope they legalize water soon so i can get a water permit.

The legal status of CBD has been weird and Illogical. The WHO proposed that it shouldn't be a scheduled drug two years ago and CBD could be processed and sold without regulation in America. But it was still considered a Schedule 1 drug by the federal government because it's classified as psychoactive cannabis! And US Customs would seize CBD shipments.

Industrial hemp is legal, industrial hemp products like rope and clothing are legal, but CBD oil obtained from industrial hemp is considered a Schedule 1 drug. Madness.

Glad there's someone in the universe as cynical as me. We both know that rescheduling is helping someone out quite a bit, the big pharmaceutical drug companies. They'll be selling THC and CBD preparations for huge huge profits.

But the other big winner here is sick people around the world. With CBD no longer restricted millions of people will get the medicine they need, a medicine that not only works better but should be much cheaper then the medicine they've had to use previously. It shows that things can change for the better and that governments can do the compassionate and correct thing. (occasionally..)
